Focus and Scope

The Lyceum allows undergraduate students to submit their work for publication. The Lyceum hopes to be a forum for ideas on important global issues, and to allow students to experience the publication process. The Lyceum aspires to have a broad focus, accepting papers that are aimed at dealing critically with issues of serious political importance. Although we expect most of our papers to come from the Department of Political Science, we are open to receiving papers from all of the University of Alberta campuses. Indeed, we recognize at The Lyceum that, to use the old feminist slogan, "The Personal is always Political".
